Spokane firefighters quickly knocked down a house fire in Nine Mile Falls.

The fire started just just before 7:30 a.m. Friday on the 9300 block of West Ownby Drive.

Firefighters said the fire started in couch in the basement of the house, but a fire investigator is still looking into what ignited the fire.
